The community attended Mighty 4 Arts Foundation’s 3rd Annual Mighty 4 Day on Saturday, June 28th in downtown Union City. Old Alvarado Park was filled with a diversity of people who came to celebrate Hip Hop, Health, and Hope in beautiful weather. People enjoyed cultural performances by Tehani Dance Studio and Yaw Yan Filipino Martial Arts. We Got Next Breakin’ summer camp students performed what they learned from their week long breakin’ dance camp in front of the huge crowd of attendees. Everyone cheered them on! Food trucks with healthy options were on site.
